20,000 Members – Bigger, Better & Picking Up Steam

20000 Leagues Under The SeaI’m thrilled once again to be able to pass along an amazing milestone that KillTheCan.org has achieved.  Yesterday (July 7th, 2014) our forums passed the 20,000 member mark!!!  We’ll be celebrating only the 8th anniversary of the forums in November of this year. 20,000 members in less than 8 years is simply staggering and we’ve got no intention of slowing down any time soon.

For the 4th time in a row (the 6th time in our history), we’ve gained our latest thousand members in less than a Hall of Fame cycle of 100 days.  It took us just 96 days for gain this last thousand!

Here’s a look back at 1,000 member growth cycles:

20000 Forum Members

KillTheCan.org Hits 20,000 Registered Members!

There have been other big changes going on as well.  Since we hit 19,000 members, we’ve got a brand new forum!  It took us a while to get acclimated to the new software, but I think it’s fair to say that it was a great move that was long overdue.  Speaking of the forums, we also cracked the 2.7 million posts mark recently!  Not only that, but we passed 2,700 Facebook fans, surpassed 1,400 Twitter followers and June 2014 was the most trafficked month EVER on the main website!  There simply isn’t a better place out there if you’re looking to quit dipping. But don’t take my word for it.  There are 20,000 other folks who “get it” as well.

As always, I want to offer my sincere thanks to everyone who’s joined us so far and especially to the staff for making KillTheCan.org the incredible community that it is.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!
